Did you know that the Washington University Libraries are giving away cash prizes of $1,000 and $500 to the student who writes the best short essay about their own personal library of books? Any full-time WU student—grad or undergrad—may enter to win. There’s no restriction on subject matter. Any collection of books will do as long as it reflects your personal interests.
The contest deadline is February 29 this year. For official rules, entry forms, and examples of past winning essays, visit the Libraries’ website at http://library.wustl.edu/neureuther. Or pick up an entry form at the Olin Library checkout desk.
Again, that deadline is February 29, so act fast to cash in on your collection and win $1,000!
